Medinah Country Club used the proceeds from the 2012 Ryder Cup on Course #3 to fund the reconstruction of their members’ Course One. We began construction the day after the Europeans’ comeback victory in October 2012, and the course reopened for member play in 2014.
Holes in the middle of each nine were re-routed to create more safety margin along Medinah Road, and to open up long views across the course. Years’ worth of added pressure to the flood plain that runs through the course were mitigated by improved storm water detention built into playing features on the 4th, 11th, 14th and 17th holes. But, it’s the contours of the new greens that will keep the attention of the members for years to come.
